FOX on Tech: Archiving Facebook
Just another reason to be careful what you post on Facebook… The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is giving the thumbs up to a company’s plans to archive everything you write.
FOX News Radio’s Brett Larson has the details in this edition of “FOX on Tech”…
Just like your credit scores and crime records can linger around for years, now an archive of your Facebook posts will be a click away from perspective employers. A company called Social Intelligence complies with the Federal Trade Commission’s “Fair Credit Reporting Act” rules, according to Forbes, which are the same used by companies that keep your bill payment records.
The company will keep your Facebook records for seven years – even if they’re deleted – so a photo, a nasty update, or anything could be seen by a possible employer who subscribes to the service. Just another reason Facebook users should learn how to use the site’s security settings.
